Come in from the cold for an intimate fundraising evening of local music designed to kill the winter chill—with performances by The Jivewires, Joan Harrison & Roddy Ellias, and Kristine St-Pierre.
All proceeds go to the performers and supporting live local music in Ottawa. Cash bar. Silent auction. Door prizes. Mix and mingle with the artists. Complimentary specialty appetizers prepared by chef Kevin McCarthy. Only 100 tickets available.

The Jives deliver a high-energy show of original songs inspired by the great "jump blues" artists and “wild swing” masters of the late 40s and early 50s. With an emphasis on groove, improve, and social satire, The Jivewires will turn up the heat, and have you jumpin' and jivin’ the night away!

Classical meets jazz in this virtuoso performance of winter-inspired music designed by Joan and Roddy to warm your soul.
From finger-picked ballads to rollicking, bluesy melodies, singer/songwriter Kristine St-Pierre will charm you (in both official languages!), with her stunning voice and poignant songs.
